Peter Eurton (winning trainer of Madame Cactus)

On drawing into the race today following the scratches of two horses

“It’s been a fun week. Coming in on Tuesday, knowing about 9 o’clock in the morning when I’m getting on a plane that we’re possibly not gonna get in the race and she’s already there. The racing secretary said there’s a good chance we might get a scratch or two, and thank God we did.”
